's welcome in joan walsh. also with us tonight teri o'neill. great to have you with us. joan, you first. will the republicans pay a price for what they have done when it comes to women's issues and their stand over the last year? >> they will absolutely pay a price. one of the more interesting things, though, in the polls is really looking at the break down state by state. we think of women's issues sometimes people can think about them only in terms of contraception or choice. there are also, as you said, economic issues. he's going to really owe to to working class women in ohio. he's losing that group nationwide, but in ohio and wisconsin and iowa, he's winning working class white women. they are helping him keep that edge. he's doing a little better with white men nationwide, but the real gap is with women. so women understand this in terms of health and contraception and in terms of the things we heard about rape. but it's also a pocketbook issue. >> terry o'neill, congressman akin from missouri and mourdock who won in a tea party run off against a long-time senator, have these two

, joan walsh. >>> up next, president obama won the endorsement of mayor michael bloomberg, and today mitt romney won the endorsement of another one-percenter. i can't wait to see what that is. >>> this sunday join me for a special edition of "hardball" at 7:00 eastern. we have special guests on sunday, just us, vice president joe biden is going to join us on "hardball" sunday night at 5:00 and 7:00. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> i saw a campaign ad today. you tell me what this means. >> america is facing problems of historic proportions, and your vote could mean the difference between prosperity and ruin, but who will you choose? will you vote for the elite, harvard educated lawyer who overhauled the health care system or the elite, multimillionaire lawyer who overhauled the health care system? choose wisely, america. >> back to "hardball." first a plug for mitt romney from "the simpsons." here is mr. burns, the fictional and highly unpopular owner of springfield's nuclear plant, in pre-election panic mode. >> i have to say, despite those unimaginably horrible good job n
priorities and an msnbc contributor, vice president of biden's chief economic adviser and joan walsh, editor-at-large of salon. i was trying to get the facts and understand it. the congressional budget office, nonpartisan says if we go off the cliff january 1st which means we let those taxes terminate, the tax rates to go back up again for everybody back up there where they were before this past president was here f we let those cuts go in definition and else places, there will be $560 billion cut in the deficit but a 4% cut in the gdp throwing us technically right into recession. is that you're belief if we don't do anything between now and january 1st this country will go into recession, jared? >> it is my belief if we go over the cliff and stay over the cliff. if we're able to hammer out a deal, even if that deal isn't completely stamped and approved on january 1st, there is the possibility of a very temporary trip over the fiscal slope, if you will, and then a reversal. but if we go over the cliff and stay over the cliff i'm pretty sure we'd be looking at recession. >> what about the imp
? republican congressman james langford of oklahoma is opposed to abortion rights. joan walsh is from salon. do you think it's essential for the republicans to keep a strong pro-life plank in your party platform and may keep it as a litmus test for any presidential or vice presidential candidate? >> half of americans are very pro-life. to say to half of your americans your opinions don't count wouldn't equate to representation of them. this is a very, very important issue. yes, i do think you keep it in. i think you continue the conversation, but you do it in a way that's appropriate. chris, if you look at last year or the last two years voting in the 112th congress, there have been 11 votes on abortion in the house of representatives. 1,557 total votes, 11 of those dealt with abortion. this is not even 1% of our votes that have been taken in this session of congress. to say this has been a big issue, i think it's been pretty fair, actually. >> let's take a look at your platform. i will get to joan in a minute. let's look at the platform language. this is in the platform you agreed to as a part
. look who's laughing, joan walsh, editor-at-large at salon. her new book "what's matter with white people," appropriate for tonight's discussion. tom davis is what we used to call moderate republican. former congressman from virginia. he's like the kind of people i grew up with in pennsylvania who were republicans, like bill scrand, tom ridge. joan, looking at that survey picture, a graphic we should look at again, all those dozens of committee chairs -- you can actually call them chairmen in that case. you don't have to get confused. the top three leader, speaker majority leader, majority whip all men, white guys. i guess that's to be assumed in some cases. in this republican case, i must say, what is going on here? >> it's almost like they're defiant, chris, like they're saying, you know, we're not going to listen to the election results. we're not going to change a darn thing we're doing. we think we're doing just fine. we got here, this is the club, this is the way we're going to keep it. where were the women they were pushing out during the war on women debate? kathy morris ro

traynham, joan walsh of, author of "the other wes moore," retired army captain, wes moore, and nicholas kons skoir of "the new york times." david petraeus resigned as cia director on friday after reports of an extramarital affair and a host of questions remain about the investigation that toppled one of the country's top national security officials. lawmakers in both parties say the fbi failed in its duty to report on the secretive investigation earlier in the process. now, before we get into the debate, here are some of the key allegations and facts about this unusual investigation. first, several months ago, government officials tell nbc news that fbi investigators responded to a complaint about anonymous e-mails sent to jill kelly, a 37-year-old volunteer liaison to mcdill air force base in tampa. kelly and her husband were friends with petraeus and his wife. the fbi began by investigating whether those e-mails constituted harassment. officials told nbc news. then the bureau subsequently found that petraeus' biographer, paula broadwell, was sending those anonymous e-mai
way the first one did. joining me now is joan walsh, editor at large for and an msnbc political analyst, and raul jabraial, a contributor to "newsweek" and the daily beast and an msnbc contributor. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thank you for having us. >> joan, what is going on with john mccain? >> i don't know. he looks increasingly unhinged. i'm just going to say it. he has let this get so personal, get to him so badly that he's really sacrificing a lot of the credibility he's built up over the years. even with the mainstream media, reverend al, who tend to love john mccain. he's a regular guest on the sunday shows. but it's gotten so ugly and so dismissive of both the president and ambassador rice. in very personal terms that are going to stick and that we all want to get to the bottom of what happened. there are still some questions. there were questions when susan rice went out and talked about it. but he's distorting her statement. he's absolutely distorting what she said. and he's also being incredibly dismissive and mean-spirited. and it just

's bring in the brain trust. joan walsh, editor at large for also an msnbc political analyst. perry bacon, the editor for "the g rir grio." this is a limit brain trust. sometimes we have to fake it. not today. let's pick up the here. let's start with where andrea started. hillary clinton, one ocht names most frequently mentioned for the 2016 democratic ticket. today's "new york times," the review section devoted its first page to clinton's next move after she steps down from her cabinet position. she apparently told gail collins she's going to take some time to relax. she might consider a home decorating show as well. joan, are you buying her modest responses to questions about a presidential run? >> i am buying it. >> really? >> i think she genuinely doesn't want to run at this point. if she gets some sleep, if she goes home, if she starts to hear from women all around the country who want her to run, and if she has to listen to her husband, who clearly wants her to run, i think there's a chance that she changes her mind. i think there's also a chance she doesn't. she could
clinton! >> joan walsh is author of "what's the matter with white people?" by the way, to remind everybody david did uncover that 47% video. first of all, joan, when i hear bill clinton, i hear strains of wendell wellky losing his voice in that 1940 race. but here you have bill clinton out there today basically adding something. he does something when he shows up with obama. it seems like it's more than one or two, it's like maybe a five. >> they're larger than the sum of their parts. i was just looking at that video of president clinton, chris, and i thought he looks younger. younger than he looked in a long time and it's the 20-year anniversary of that amazing '92 campaign where he closed it out barn storming and he was losing his voice. i think president clinton sees barack obama has the completion of his legacy. we know that there was tension between them and tension between president obama and hillary clinton. but they're all come together. whatever happens with hillary clinton in the future, i think the president understands that this president needs to get re-elected to vindicate --

still haven't learned what real american values are after all. let's bring in joan walsh editor at large for and author of "what's the matter with white people." michael eric dyson is with us today from georgetown university. professor, you first. what are traditional american values. pretty generic question but pinpointing the answer was it. >> no doubt about it. i heard once a division that tradition is the living faith of dead men and women, and the traditional is the dead faith of living men and women. since he said traditional, it's the dead faith of men and women. this harkening back to a gold enera is predicated on the desire to control the president by pro jkting a past that never was what they claimed it was. when "father knew best" and american white men were at the helm of american society in television and beyond, women were abused and the silencing of minorities happened and there's an extraordinary inability of america to recognize freedom for everybody. for me, tradition is democracy, freedom, justice, equality, and the ability to project the best of the american
of georgia and joan walsh, editor-at-large by salon. author of "what's the matter with white people"? that question seems apt. the l.a. times just posted a report on mitt romney's conference call today with top donors. it says romney, quote, attributed his rival's victory to, quote, the gifts the obama administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comme
